Tottenham Court Road Tube, exit 1 | Map
Headin' to their haunts and hangouts. Where they riffed and let rip, these men of wealth and taste. Please allow me to introduce The Rolling Stones, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, David Bowie, The Sex Pistols, The Clash, Blur, Oasis... It's a Who's Who of the music. Each act has a London tale to tell… Very often a tale so decadent – so down and dirty – that Caligula himself would blush! Guided by Adam or Rex.
In the Winter 2018-19 London Walks programme – which kicks in on November 1 and runs through April 30 – it's ready, steady, go as soon as we get to April.

"London Walks is the best, hands down." Frommer's London
"Unmissable: Rock 'n' Roll really rocks. Adam is an amazing guide and incredible story-teller and since this walk is all about landmarks and stories you cannot hope to get a better guide. My husband and I are addicted to London Walks and this is really one of the best ones that we have been on." rh24 from Ithaca, New York
